Ear Problems Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for ear problems. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "ear problems" is rarely designed with the resulting "ear problems" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

When developing an acupuncture protocol a practitioner is very often focusing on the causal diagnoses in Chinese Medicine terms, not on the condition itself. A potential range of underlying factors and approaches for ear problems are described in our acupuncture protocol pages - "acupuncture for ear infections and inflammations ", "acupuncture for otitis media (middle ear infections) " .

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
